Popular being marketable, yes he is. Popular being liked, no he's not.
I voted yes because I think the intent was to see who most people watch or talk about and that is most def Brock.

Absolutely. There is no debate cold hard numbers don't lie and you can go on about the Japanese but lets not forget that they paid Lesnar a fortune to go over and do pro wrestling there before he got into MMA. Lesnar is custom made bigger than life the kind of guys that the Japanese fans absolutely love. Its not debatable, numbers tell the whole story.

"It depend on what your definition of the word is is."

somebody once said.

I don't equate Biggest draw with most popular. I'm weird.

edit: at one time tito was the biggest draw. I don't think he was ever considered the most popular. just 2 more cents.

There are different types of popularity, the GSP popularity where he is liked by such a large number of people, and the Lesnar popularity, people just want to watch him regardless of their opinion of him.

The fact that this is a business and the numbers dont lie, will Lesnar's PPV numbers continue to be so high? who knows...

popular is the wrong word. Brock is the most infamous. He plays the villain well, so everyone either loves or hates him. There are very few people who do not have a strong opinion of him.

Thats is why he sells so many ppvs, but he is not popular like michael jackson or johnny depp. Brock is popular like like George W. Bush is popular.

Seeing as how any card he's main eventing goes over 1 million buys, I'd say so.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

If you exclude the USA, it's probably GSP.

Include the USA, it's probably Brock.

I really don't care either way though.

He has the most fans..........so in answer to your question yes, however i dont consider him the popular for the simple fact that the MAJORITY of his fans wouldnt be MMA fans if he was still in WWE , so unlike GSP Anderson Fedor Wanderlei they earned theres in MMA when it was growing, he already had a fanbase in a established profession which millions watch every week and brought them along and then combine that with the ones he has gained he was always going to be a draw.

Velasquez will be back
